Nice sour, citric aroma emanating from this ale. There’s also some floral scents and some barnyard hay here. Hazy gold with a rocky white head, it’s a medium-bodied brew, quite easy to drink. Not too awfully sour in the mouth, just enough for a small pucker, pink grapefruit, crabapples, and a dandelion-like bitterness. The real acidic souring comes in the finish, making this quite a refreshing Flemish ale.

DocLock (7502) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 14, 2005
Bottle from the Beer Yard. Poured hazy deep gold colored with a 3-finger, fizzy white head. Aromas of big fruit, citrus, funky barnyard. The flavor was very tart, with a solid citrus, fruit, and barnyard taste profile. Lively, complex palate. As it warms, this one gets extremely tart, almost gueuzy, and almost reaching a Cantillon-like tartness. Very nice style. Petrus is one of my new favorite brewers.

bmanning (142) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - NOV 9, 2005
Pours hazy golden with a very thin white head that dissipated almost instantly. Aroma is of pear, honey, berries, and sour apple. Taste is fruity, sweet, and sour. There are citrus flavors (very acidic) along with a strong sour apple taste. There is also a large woody flavor with some spices in the finish. This is a very tart, crisp beer that is surprisingly refreshing. I’m not a fan of the flemish sours, but this is pretty good.

Steib (613) - Queen Creek, Arizona, USA - NOV 2, 2005
Light golden color with a big diminishing head. Large sweet aroma, like a honey liquor. Fruity sweet and sour in the flavor. A little acidic in the aftertaste. Runs the gamut of sweet but I find it smooth and flavorfull.

OlivierMTL (711) - Quebec, CANADA - NOV 1, 2005
Couleur dorée allant vers l’orange pale, apparence claire et translucide. Faible à moyenne quantité de mousse blanche concassée rapidement diminuante mais se renouvellent partiellement. Arômes de pommes vertes, de jeune cuir, de levures sauvages et de métal. Sensation en bouche sûre, vinaigré et lactique. Saveurs de bois, de cuir et de pommes-raisins verts. Aucune trace d’alcool d’identifiable durant tout l’étalement, nous conduisant vers une finale très sèche, aux accents de levures. Corps d’épaisseur semi mince, carbonatation hyper-active aux fines bulles champagnesques.

I really liked this stuff. 330 ml bottle. Poured hazy yellow with a smallish head. Aromas were citrus and sour apple and currant. The flavor did not vary much from that execpt that the tartnes was more profound. Very tart and vinous. Very tasty. I like it!!!

Sampled at RBESG 2005. Pale golden colour with a weak head. Wood and sour aroma. Also sour flavour with notes of wood. Not my favorites.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - OCT 1, 2005
Bottle. Golden, clear, nice white head. Acidic fruity nose, like a Rodenbach GC or Panil. Malty acidic flavors. Wood. Lingering acidity. Not too overpowering, but pleasant. Not very heavy on the palate. Almost reminds me of a Berliner Kindle Weiss. This is in fact, refreshing.
